I recently updated a number of packages on my system, and in a couple
of cases I ran in to problems where either parts, or entire groups
of applications were reqcompiled multiple times for each dependency.

kde3 is a great example of this, all of kde3 was recompiled for both
the pth and qt upgrades (as would be expected) and parts of kde
(like kdenet) were recomipled a couple of times on their own. It would
have been nice if I could have told the system to hold off on the kde3
rebuild until after all of the other dependendicies were complete.

Is there a way of doing this with the package system?
